Baked Pizza Biscuits

For the longest time I always felt pressure to cook something wonderful or gourmet every time I fixed dinner for Nate and me.  I mean, he is a chef, he couldn’t possibly want to eat anything less than awesome!  Choosing the perfect meal to make for dinner sometimes felt impossible so I would insist on us going out to eat that night.  Thank goodness I finally realized, he doesn’t care what I make as long as it just tastes good.  If the meal meets that one requirement, then the ingredients and techniques used don’t really matter.  

You should have seen his face when I told him I was making biscuit pizzas.  He said “you mean, English muffin pizzas?”… Nope, biscuit pizzas!  I felt so accomplished that he had never heard or thought of making a biscuit pizza.  This recipe is so simple, satisfying, and fun to make.  I’m sure children would have fun making their own personal biscuit pizza!  Next time you want to defrost a frozen pizza, give this recipe a try instead. 
Ingredients
1 tube of 8 jumbo flaky buttermilk biscuits
1/2 – 1 cup of marinara sauce (depending on how much sauce you prefer)
1 pack of your favorite shredded cheese
Any of your favorite pizza toppings! Pepperonis, onions, peppers, italian seasoning, crushed red pepper, tomatoes, bacon, sausage, mushrooms, anchovies, etc.

Directions:
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Spray a baking pan with non-stick spray.
Pop open the tube of biscuits and as you take each of them out, use your thumbs to press out the dough (Like you would with normal pizza dough). You should make a shallow pocket to fill with sauce/cheese/toppings. 
Place each biscuit at least 1 inch apart on the baking pan.


Add a spoonful of marinara sauce, cheese, and toppings to each biscuit.  Then bake in the oven 15-18 minutes until the cheese is melted and the biscuits are done.

  1. What a neat and easy treat. My grandkids would love these and they are much easier for little hands to handle. They are coming for a fun party tomorrow night and think this will be a big hit…and I have everything on hand. Thanks for your visit!

  2. I've been doing similar for many years…but I like to pre-bake my mashed out biscuits for 3-4 minutes and THEN put the ingredients on and bake a bit more. I also use a tomato paste/olive oil/garlic/italian herb mixture for my sauce…FULL of flavor! 🙂
